@Dude - check the marathon site you are running - sometimes they have a printable training plan...

example: I am running Grandma's Marathon in Duluth MN - they have a long version for each week as well as just the millage "at a glance" for their marathon - you could go off that one - and get a few "training" in before the race since you have a year - it is a 3+ month plan - for 3 levels of runners...

Hi, Everyone! There is a Marathon in the City about 30 Km from where I live. It's in two weeks. So I have decided to run the one in 2013. That gives me 12 months to prep. Now I need a Training Plan. Anyone know of any good ones. It's time to get serious!

@Justin,

Thanks For the Info. I was only looking at doing it when I have the urge. Right now I'm not pushing myself at a higher tempo  I'm just looking at doing a 30 min relaxed in the AM and another 30 min relaxed in the PM. I'm hoping to increase my overall conditioning. When I can get up to 45 min run I'll then work on tempo. I guess. I'm trying to get conditioned to run a marathon. I am also not pushing myself to injury. Thanks!!!

Dude,

Run as much as you like.  2 a days, and even 3 a days are great so long as you're enjoying it. The benefits of splitting up the runs are being able to cover the milage at a slightly higher tempo, and getting in a few more miles.  When doubling, so long as most your runs aren't hammer fests and your not totally overdoing the milage you won't overtrain.  Generally that takes a lot of volume of training, with not enough recovery over a long period of time in order to fry your nervous system to that point.

@Jelle Thanks for the informative answer. I'm only running about 6Km in 30min. but i just running again after a several year break. Thanks!

@Dude It's usually fine to go running twice a day, but be careful for overtraining and undereating. If you run 8km in 30minutes this may count as overtraining for most people. In regards to your body weight exercise questions, just do them. It doesn't really matter if you do them prior or post running. We can go into bodybuilding discussions and the most effective approach to train different muscle groups, but I don't believe this will add any benefits to your trainings, just show up and get a nice pleasant workout runtime as part of your lifestyle.

Would it be bad to go running twice in one day? 30 min inthe morning and then 30 min in the evening?

Hi! what kind of a run routine do so do so far?
